Every time I have heard Kleiman speak on drug policy he throws a phrase or two that reveals his contempt for drug users. This time it was whether pot smokers could put the bong down long enough. This kind of animosity where the policy makers have to be neutral, erodes objectivity and damages their credibility
Why is it necessary for policy makers to be neutral?
